Traffic shaping applies to P2P and NNTP but is quite easy to evade.
They have always had downstream traffic limits on the lower packages and have now introduced them for all products. Upstream limits for all products came in with the upstream uplifts which is now almost complete all across the network. Exceed a limit and the speed is throtted back for 5 hours. This is by 75% on the low-end products and 50% for the higher speed packages.
If you are interested in the details they are published on the VM website.
How would you evade the traffic shaping?
